Now You Can Mix Video DJ-style!The motion dive .tokyo performance package is a collaboration between Digitalstage, creators of motion dive .tokyo, and Edirol. Edirol has enhanced the already famous motion dive .tokyo software by adding MIDI functionality and designing a unique USB powered hardware controller that mirrors the software interface. The combined pieces create a new and exciting way to perform visuals in real time.
Edirol motion dive.tokyo performance package at a Glance:
DJ Style Visual Performance
Just like taking two music tracks and fading them back and forth, scratching or adding effects, the idea is the same on the motion dive. Use the smooth A/B Fader to alternate between channel A and B, scratch the clips rhythmically with the Scratch Buttons, and use the Control Knobs to control color EQ effects and the BPM. Selecting video clips are quick by dragging and dropping them to the A and B output channels, or by using the large dial and channel buttons on the controller.
Wide File Support
motion dive can import QuickTime movies and most picture formats from digital cameras. It also supports AVI and MPEG files, as well as Macromedia Flash contents. It can even playback AIFF/WAV/MP3 audio files on the computer's hard disk. To get you started right away, motion dive comes with a video library created by several top professional VJ artists.
Audio and Visual Collaboration
With motion dive, you can play and remix the visuals along to the music, and then record and playback your visual performance as one piece of artwork. For this bundled package, motion dive can receive MIDI messages, therefore you can connect an electronic instrument to the controller unit, and perform the music and visuals at the same time. For instance, you can program your music and your clip sequences on a separate sequencer, and control visual effects from your instrument.
V-LINK for Complete Integration
Its also compatible to Roland/Edirol V-LINK instrument such as Fantom-X series keyboards, MC-909 sampling groovebox, SP-606 sampling workstation, and Edirol PCR series (PCR-30/50/80/M1/M30/M50/M80/A30) MIDI keyboards for triggering video clips and controlling effects. By activating the V-LINK function on the instrument, pre-programmed settings are called up for instant integration with motion dive. Custom parameter settings can also be done in the V-LINK mode on the instrument. This is the future of the new visual performance art scene!

by MusicMeister from Pensacola, FloridaI'm just starting on the VJ thing - adding it to my DJ shows. I'm looking for ambient content to provide some visual splash to my shows. So after some deep thought I order this product. I installed... read more [+] the drivers, and the next thing I know I'm mixing video, using the effects, and even throwing up text on the fly. The interface is fairly intuitive, the hardware extremely easy to use and the best part? It comes with 575 video 'samples' to work with out of the box!

Ok, the drawbacks? If you plan on doing mpeg2 you'll need to obtain the Quicktime pro package from Apple as the software uses quicktime as the 'hook' to handle most video content.
Second drawback? Don't expect it to handle your musical mixing. This is designed for video - and while it WILL play the music associated with a video clip it's best suited for video only use. Core functions that you would want for audio are not available and may be difficult to implement within the software.
All in all, this is a rock solid package for the up and coming VJ to start with. And even with the minor drawbacks I still have to rate this as a 5! I have a gig coming up in a few weeks that would be perfect to add video to and this product will work wonderfully. close [-]
The obvious choice for warehouse party and club visuals, but what about a rock band? If the crowd is bored with your shoegazing then give them something with the music. Drag and drop, crossfade and trigger, so easy even your drummer can use it!
